Helping students with visual impairments involves more than just providing large print books or books in braille. Creating a culture of respect that acknowledges differences but also encourages independence takes thought and effort. An Orientation and Mobility instructor with the Vision Department with the Toronto District School Board will provide tips and techniques she uses and a Teacher-Librarian will share her learning she gained from the Vision Team that applies to all communities that wish to be inclusive.
– Discover accommodation and modification strategies that would be useful for most students but especially those with vision impairments.
– Collect resources and techniques to make school library spaces and programming inclusive to blind students.
